This surely is an oversight from Xbox.

Would they not want that especially for Gamepass, as a standard.

Microsoft are very well known for their excellent services, i find this strange, is it a money thing? it can't be can it
They will just release a new model in 2021 or 2022 with the newer hardware.

Ok, does this effectively mean we are close to that PS5 teardown we were told about?

Edit: was also hoping for Wifi ay. Does this mean no wireless PSVR2?

This is great news for ps5! I was stressing the importance of it in next gen thread. Glad its confirmed!
Has Microsoft announced what the Seris X wifi is yet?

i mean wifi6 is great, but your ISP needs to provide wifi6 service (and may increase monthly costs). I talked to xfinitiy, at &t, and they stated the maximum speeds they can provide is

1 gigabits per second


a lot of gamers dont care for wifi6 because they will be using wired cable connection to get the best connection with no lag 🤷‍♂️
